It’s Studio Sunday! Today we’re taking a look inside the personal studio of Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky is best known as one of the pioneers of abstract art, using impressionism as a starting point and eventually finding a way of working that allowed him to compose images entirely from his own imagination. 

 

Kandinsky’s studio space, seen in the images, was a rather tight space, packed with books and bottles of pigment, with sketches…

Canvas is a durable cotton fabric for painting on .... and that's where many artist's knowledge of canvas stops.  When buying canvas you are going to find that the shop will probably stock different types. If you've been blindly buying your canvas maybe you have just gone with whatever is cheapest, on sale, or more expensive (guessing that it must be worth it somehow).

 

Here's what you need to know about canvas so that you can make…

Trapezius 5, cut paper and collage

Mark M. Garett traces the uneven, sloping lines of a landscape across his images, using maps as both an inspiration and a medium. Found on his website - www.markmgarett.com - are many examples of different categories of work – some that is collaged from and based on cartography, some anatomical work that also echoes the shapes of land masses and bodies of water, and some that is bizarre and…

Tree Series grouping of 4

Mindy Harrell is an artist from Georgia who focuses on trees as a motif and subject in much of her work. These works are of heavily stylized trees, but keep the basic upright form of tree trunks, which I find lends them the feeling of forests seen through thick mist or fog.

 


Tree Series 020613

While the basis of her artwork is paint, sometimes Mindy incorporates other materials and objects into the works,…

He spent some time as an illustrator for a video game company, before deciding to start pursuing a career as a comic artist.

Here are three ways to raise your awareness about safety in the art studio. There are three ways you can be exposed to toxins and irritants in art material:

 

1. Inhalation - inhaling fumes or particles through the mouth or nose into the lungs

Sunset Cape May

Photographer Ted Diamond talks a lot about the American Flag in his artist’s statement, however to focus only on that would be to overlook some of the other interesting work that he has produced.

 

I am quite taken with Ted’s series “A Man and His Bag” – which, at a glance is fairly self-explanatory, but upon a longer look is a great exercise in narrative photography, and tells an open-ended story that is up to the…

Art by Chuck Groenink

 

Each day we seek balance - the type of balance that in turn supports our creative practice as artists. It's laundry, personal accounting, groceries, cleaning  In our efforts to manage our daily tasks and responsibilities we don't get the opportunity to create art as much as we'd like. A type of pressure builds up - for me I can start to feel anxious if I don't think I'll have time to work within the next 24…

Aaron Curry is a sculptor from Texas who uses plywood, metal, spray paint and other materials to create large, anthropomorphic forms that seem to change depending on the angle they are seen from.  His studio space, located in a large warehouse in Los Angeles, California, must be big enough to accommodate many of these forms along the walls, as well as work tables stuffed full of paint and other supplies.

 

A recent motif in Curry’s…
